DEADLINE: Young Writer on Liberty Competition

March 17

| Free

The Adam Smith Institute invites you to enter our annual ‘Young Writer on Liberty’ competition. This year’s theme is:
Three policy choices to make the UK a Freer Country

Each entrant must write three essays in the style of the ASI blog, each no longer than 400 words, and each explaining a different policy choice that could make the UK freer, richer and happier. No policy choice is out of the question—indeed counterintuitive policy choices may be particularly interesting if backed up by strong arguments.

The winner will receive £250 and have their three posts published on our blog. They will also get a box of liberty-themed books & the opportunity to do two weeks of work experience here at the ASI.

Two runners-up will also have their posts published on the blog, as well as receiving a package full of interesting books.
Last year’s winner was George Kirby, who argued that we should legalise markets in organs, that there should be greater roaming rights in the UK, like those enjoyed in some Nordic countries, and that the UK would benefit from US-style federalism.

The deadline is 17th March, 2014, and all applicants must be aged 20 or under on this date.

Please submit all entries to schools@adamsmith.org.
